What We Know

According to the Nashville Area Metro Planning Organization, the Middle Tennessee region will grow by a million more people over the next 20 years.  While this growth contributes to our economic vitality, it also challenges our transportation infrastructure and our quality of life. Today’s average commute time of 20 minutes will increase substantially as many new people move to our area to take advantage of our economic growth. Nashville and the surrounding counties must plan and implement a multimodal transit system to address the growing congestion.
